Tull's Anderson Avoids Politics

Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull is up front about keeping political opinions on the back burner when it comes to concert routing.  A post from Anderson on the Jethro Tull web site says he rebuffed artists and activists seeking to enlist him in boycotting concerts in solidarity against Mid-East political conflict.  Anderson said he decided to go ahead with concerts in the region after he '...started receiving some very hateful communication from people representing different sides of this ongoing issue - from supposed human rights supporters to individuals, bodies and groups'.  He tells the Jersulalem Post his 'don't fucking tell me what to do' message seems to have put a stop to the pressure, saying, '...nobody has uttered a peep' since it went online.
